Second writing assignment in our writing group, answer the question, Who are you? from the 3rd person perspective.

Her eyes light up,

Her laughter is contagious,

But beyond the mirth,

A heaviness settles,

Weariness that comes with life's struggles,

A look of determination,

A strong spirit,

Always a balancing act,

To maintain some control,

She is nurturing,

She feels too deeply,

She tries to heal others,

Yet she herself is broken,

She appears laid back,

Her spirit calm,

She goes with the flow like a river,

Overcoming any obstacles in her path,

She overflows with love,

She is naive, too trusting,

Darkness overtaking her mind,

But she will continue fighting,

Like a warrior,

She may be lost,

But wise and unyielding,

To the forces that threaten her,

But one day,

She will burn her past to the ground,

Rise like a phoenix from the ashes,

And her soul will be at peace.
